This traditional pub has been given a complete refurbishment and, under new landlord Piero Pagliaroli, has been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2015. The enclosed garden, outdoor decking and children's play area make it appealing for outdoor dining, while the low beams and log fire make it cosy and inviting in the colder months. A wealth of pub classics is available throughout the day, and the food is all fresh, locally sourced and home cooked. The menu includes sharing dishes, salads, ploughman's platters, burgers, an excellent grill and a good choice of starters and mains. There's a small but tempting range of desserts, including the heavenly sticky toffee pudding, and a popular roast on Sundays with succulent meat and the crispiest of roast potatoes. Monday is Italian night, when wonderfully authentic selections include arancini (rice balls with a mozzarella filling and breadcrumb coating, served with a ragu sauce), the Pagliaroli family's own Neapolitan version of spaghetti bolognese, and seafood dishes such as pasta frutti di mare. A good range of wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks is also available, and the well-kept real ales have earned The Spotted Dog approval from Cask Marque. This friendly pub is a fabulous venue for a drink, a snack or a three-course meal. The large private car park makes it easy to access and dogs are welcome except on Saturday night and Sunday, when the pub gets very busy and booking is recommended
